If the saying was to he given local ap
plication and applied to the six able jus
tices who preside on the Ramsey county
district bench, it is just possible that the
truth of the old saying would once
more be illustrated.
A number of judges have expressed
themselves as being inclined toward
Scotch novels, and according to their
own stories, they all love to fish—are ex
pert fishermen in fact.
Jodge Brill 1m a Reader.
One of Judge Hascal R. Brill's favor
ite pastimes is reading, and he is especi
ally fond of works of history and good
fiction. Like all other good judges, he
likes to fish occasionally and can tell as
good a fish story as the next one, when
called upon to do so. His principal en
joyment comes, however, at that season
I —— .
when he has an annual vacation and can
spend two or three weeks in the country.
"It is certainly the greatest time of the
year for me," said the judge, "when 1
can go to the country and spend a fe- -

city tor so long a time, that the countiy
seems like a paradise to me, and I a j

equal to a two or three weeks' sojourn
in t.he country, where all nature ap

deeply interested. Of all the pastimes
it is probable that the one of reading
occupies the most of my time.
"I like to fish and hunt, and every
year, in my trip to the country, I in
variably hunt vp a gcod fishintf place,
and fish till I am all fished out."
Judge Kelly Can Fish, Also
Judge William Louis Kelly likes to
fish, but aside from an annual outing, he
spends little time In following up the
sport, and his life has very little in it
to relieve a marked monotony.
"I am pretty regular in my habits of
life," remarked Judge Kelly recently,
"and what I do one day, I do pretty
near every day in the year. I generally
take a little outing to go fishing, and
sometimes 1 have pretty good luck. I well
remember two years ago, when I accom

Judge Otis Rides a Wheel.
Judge Charles E. Otis is a cyclist, and
he spends most of his time, at least when
he is looking for recreation, in spinning
around on his wheel. Other amusements
and pastimes are of secondary im
pc rtance with him.
"Most people have hobbies," saidi Judge
Otis recently, "but I have none, nor
have I any particular way in which I
amuse myself, after hours.

Judge Olin B. Lewis loves his home,
and he pays little attention to the friv
olous pastimes and sports. He likes to
read and enjoys hunting, but most of
his time is spent at home.
"When my day's work is finished, I am
very glad to rest," said Judge Lewis the
other day. "Life here is more strenuous
than most people appreciate, and the
time that I spend each day with my

judges," he remarked the other day, "in

Ji£dge George L. Bunn has two hob
bies and they are fishing and playing
whist, and it is hard t« tell in which the
Judge excels as he is expert in both.
He is considered quite an eminent author

remarkable fish stories.

WHY AN INJURED MAN
Did Not Fancy Being Comforted by
t- -' His Two Wives— Ticklish ].<
NEW YORK, May 24.—We had a fun
ny case at the hospital the other day,"
said the doctor, "tne circumstances of
which you can interpret as you please
after you have heard the details.
"A man was brought in pretty badly
injured. He had attempted to get off a
trolley car while it was in motion and
had struck one of the 'L' pillars. The
result was concussion of the brain and
some fractured ribs. In his pocket were
two letters, both of which bore the nanrn
of John Ruggles, but the addresses on
the envelopes were different. One let
ter was addressed to Baltimore and the
other Annapolis. There was absolutely
nothing else by which the man could be
identified". We took the only means that
we could of communicating with his
friends, which was by telegraphing to
"Next day a woman called and said
she lived at the address we had tele
graphed to' in Baltimore, and she had
no doubt that the injured man was her
husband. He was, she explained, a
guard on the line between Baltimore and
Annapolis, and had come to New York
on a holiday. No sooner had she got
threuerh with her story than another
woman rushed in, saying that she had
no doubt in the world, from the descrip
tion we had furnished, that the patient
was her spouse.
"She also volunteered the statement
that her husban.l was a guard, ana
worked on the" line between Baltimore
and Annapolis, at which latter place she
lived, Furthermore, she said that he
.stopped alternate days at the towns
"We were in a quandary as to what to
do. At last we decided that the best
way out of the difficulty was to let both
the Women .see the patient, who was
hardly conscious. We warned the wom
en that they must control their feelings
and not make a scene, as the patient was
still in a critical condition. This they
promised to do.
."They both approached the bed where
Ruggles lay and looked at him. No. 1
burst into tears and sobbed out, 'Oh,
yes, that's my Jim! I'd know him any
where,' while No. 2, though controlling
her feelings, had not the least difficulty
in identifying the poor fellow as her
spouse from Annapolis.
"The case now assumed, rather a se
rious aspect, and we were afraid that an
encounter between the two women might
have an untoward effect on our patient,
so we suggested that the ladies should
see the clothes which Ruggies ■ had on
at the time of the accident, by which
means the identification migt be made
"The clothes were brought, and anoth
er scene took place. The lady from
Baltimore recognized a patch on the
trousers which she declared she had
only the last week sewn on, while the
siren from Annapolis was absolutely pos
itive of a button that she had affixed to
Ruggles' coat only a few days before.
"Confusion was worse confounded when
having been asked to describe some dis
tinguishing mark on Ruggles' ~6dy, both
women simultaneously described a straw
berry mark on the right leg and a seat
on his armf Both marks were found.
"Nothing now remained to be done
but to wait for the patient to recover
somewhat before he could meet the
women face to face and himself decide
which of the two was his wife. I musi
say that I had a sneaking hope for his
sake that the poor man would not re
cover, for I had my own opinion of the
"By dint of good nursing, however,
and with the aid of a strong constitu
tion, Ruggles was pronounced one day
as able to go through the trying ordeal
of meeting his would-b? spouses. The
two women were sent for without tell-
